We went in to find camping gear for my son (which we did) but then I found hiking boots and very stylish winter boots - both on sale! Many choices. Friendly staff.

I've gotten some good deals here and sometimes found some apparel, but when they have a sale I go for the boots and shoes, you'll find some great brands at a good price and the staff is very helpful. This time I'd let my bike get way out of tune and couldn't get it to shift well for $40 (well... More

We have been coming to Estes for 7 years in a row and have always found the Mountain Shop staff to be friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. The prices of their guided trips is indeed a bargain, their products fairly priced and the bargain basement truly filled with bargains.... More

We arranged a half day fly fishing trip for our family of 3 adults. We purchased our licenses there, pulled on their waders, and headed out. Matt Shaffer took us past the "decoy water" where he said people fished because it was easy to get to but there were no fish. Carrying their rods and flies, we hiked up a... More
